The Komodo national park consists of the islands of Komodo, Rinca, Padar, several smaller ones and a coastal section of western Flores. It is located in Indonesia to the west of Flores island and covers a total area of 1733 km² of which 633 km² are land. It was established in 1980 to protect the Komodo dragon, the world's largest lizard who only lives in this region. The islands have a relatively dry climate and have savannah-like landscapes. The park is also rich in marine life, with a large number of cetaceans, fish species and corals. It attracts a growing number of tourists who come here to visit the Komodo and Rinca islands and to dive.
